I'm really sorry to miss this one, but Rob and I just took a break from our two-week National Park camping trip to join the first annual Ride of Silence in Boulder, CO. They had a very nice turnout of serious bikers to support the ride and we were happy to be able to find a ride near where we are camping. We will plan to be back in Chicago for next years ride.

A route will be posted later today.

We will depart Daley Plaza at 6:30pm, visiting Hector Avalos' ghost bike and then returning back through the loop to conclude at Bobby Cann's ghost bike.

A post-ride gathering will be held at Yojimbo's Garage (directly across from Bobby Cann's ghost bike).
